My family eats sweet potatoes french fries as a side dish fairly frequently, and my kids love 'em! Our favorite way of doing this is the following, although you can really add any combination of spices that you
SWEET POTATO FRIES
What You Need:
two or three firm orange sweet potatoes
large bowl of ice water
olive oil (you could use butter or canola oil too)
What To Do:
preheat oven to 450 degrees
scrub the potatoes, cut into long wedges (skin on) and place in bowl of ice water for 15-20 minutes.
coat the baking sheet with a light layer of olive oil
drain potatoes and pat dry with paper towels
drizzle a little olive oil over the potatoes and add one or two tablespoons of brown sugar, a tsp. salt and chili powder to taste, mix (with hands is best) until well distributed.
place potatoes on baking sheet and cook, turning as needed, until tender inside and slightly crisp and turning golden on outside, about 20 min. - do not let them burn.
